I dont see why not. If you were to place a couple layer of gorilla tape on the ground end of the poles, then dip, allow to dry then dip again..........you should be able to build up a layering effect. I have used it in the past and when I damaged it I just cut it off and re-applied. look at the website there are several kinds of dip/spray that I think will work in this application. Please let me know how it turns out!!!!!!!!
